Keeney and Schnebel examined more tha n 50 student athletes in football and soccer.

“The key things to assess are any precursors that may or may not allow a student to participate in athletics,” said Rob Hibberts, head athletic trainer.

The doctors, along with other physicians, will be back on campus on Aug. 23 to continue examinations for the remaining 375 athletes.

“Dr. Schnebel and Dr. Keeney have provided invaluable service to Ranger student-athletes for years,” said Dr. Janet Cunningham, university president. “Northwestern appreciates their assistance so much.”
